This mission (as well as the rest in this galaxy) starts on the largest planet in the Honeyhive Galaxy. The player must take the path up the hill with a ? Coin, which makes the Bee Mushroom appear when obtained. The Bee Mushroom must be collected in order to fly up to the nearby ledges. A tree stump that has a hole in it is found at the end of a tunnel after reaching said ledges. The player must fall down the hole and use the slide. Following this, there is a path way with honey puddles that must be traversed in order to reach a Launch Star. The next planet is a pond filled with lily pads, and one of the platforms has a Banandelion that is used to spin up and gain height. This flower is also used to reach some spinning flower platforms, which must then be crossed while avoiding the water jets to reach another Launch Star. The first honey wall is encountered after reaching the Launch Star. Once the wall is climbed, the Queen Bee is encountered. She starts to complain about a horrible itching plague, and asks the player to find the source of her itch, which turn out to be Star Chips. Then, using a Launch Star leads the player to the top of a tree on the Starting Planet. The leader of the Toad Brigade presents the player with a Power Star. When this mission is completed, the Toad Brigade appears on the Comet Observatory.

  • Using the lily pad glitch, it is possible to reach a planet which is only intended to be accessible in Trouble on the Tower, allowing the player to defeat the five Piranha Plants on said planet for five additional coins. However, it takes multiple hours to gain enough height from the lily pad to reach the planet.[citation needed]
